Abstract : If a Department of Defense aircraft is struck by enemy weapons or needs to perform under extreme circumstances, the craft has but one task: Get its crew back home safely. The Program Executive Office for Tactical Aircraft Programs, Department of the Navy, is working to ensure the Navys aircraft demonstrate proven capability and reliability in operations as varied and as dangerous as those required by current U.S. military operations. As the program executive officer overseeing PEO(T), Rear Adm. W. Mark Skinner is responsible for ensuring the office fosters innovative, meaningful research and development, and that it maintains a myriad of programs in the face of ever-evolving demands and increasing operations tempos. He recently took time total to Defense AT and L about his offices current tasks and challenges.
